look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A strong pour into a tulip poured a huge, off white 5-finger head that billowed and frothed like it was alive for a few minutes, then receded really quickly leaving spotty lacing. The beer looks a dark amber and burnt orange.

Lots of malt complexities in the nose, sort of woody, earthy and roasty quality. The smell is definitely sharp with some hops, but not particularly floral or citrusy.

Sharp citrus and boozy hop spice at first then the maltiness takes over which is actually not as thick as I thought it was going to be. THe malt bill is definitely more geared towards a roasty quality, sort of reminds me of Hop Rod Rye by Bear Republic. The hops are super earthy and have a lot of terroir. Booziness persists throughout the palate. Mouthfeel is really nice and clean, slick and oily.

It's definitely a different take on a double IPA, I was happy to come across a bottle of this. It's not the IPAs we get on the West Coast but I really enjoyed to nutty, grainy and woody characteristics of the different hop strains.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Nice and classic Nogne bottle art. Pours a clear light orange color forming a huge and bubbled white head. Good retention and lots of soapy and lingering lacings formed and left in the glass

S: Strong fruity and citrus notes. Grapefruit, pine and pineapple. Sweet pale grains. Flowery hops

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Very citrus notes. Grapefruit, pineapple, pine. In overall, a slightly sweet taste followed by a strong and pleasant hops bitterness. Well hidden 8.5% ABV

M: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Fruity, citrus and piny aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Another Nogne classic
